10 Most Read Kubernetes Articles on My Blog in 2018

Last update:

Let's start this year with some stats from the last one, 2018. Probably 99% of the articles on this blog are Kubernetes related. I wrote 28 articles in 2018 which is good, but my goal was 50 actually. I think that Kubernetes adoption in 2019 will grow, at least stats from my blog shows that and you will see the same in Google trends:
